It looks false and the fact I can't find it on the Senate site leads me to believe it is false also.

That's stupid for them to tax the gun enthusiasts just because we are a smaller group than the average. Let's tax everything equally. I know fast food/obesity kills more people than bullets do. Just because it can be counted by the bullets and heart attachs and strokes don't get counted doesn't make it not true. It wouldn't even be noticeable to add a cent to federal sales tax to everything. That would get more revenue than $50 on a gun.
